Now, I love fermented fruit kvass as much as the next girl, don’t get me wrong here.
But I also love me some chocolate.
I know. It’s so stereotypical, isn’t it? A female who loves chocolate.
But I do. And I don’t care who knows it, either!
It’s a love without shame.
And just in case there are other stereotypical females out there who love to scratch that chocolate itch every now and then, I decided to share a wonderful recipe I found over at the Food Renegade. It’s a whole food option to an otherwise store-bought treat. Plus, it jiggles.
That’s right! It’s chocolate pudding.
Are you salivating yet?
You should be. Because not only does this dessert mix up in less than ten minutes, but it’s also delicious. Trust me. I know. I ate three bowls.
What? Quit judging. They were small-er-ish bowls.
Homemade Chocolate Pudding
You will need:
- 2 cups of whole, organic milk (or coconut milk)
- 3 tablespoons of cocoa powder
- 4 tablespoons arrowroot powder (You can easily find it at your health food store! Don’t worry, it’s cheap.)
- 1/3 cup honey (Don’t worry about using raw, we’re boilin’ this bad boy.)
- 1 teaspoon real vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon high-quality butter
Step One: In a jar, mix together the cocoa powder, arrowroot powder, and milk as best as you can.
Step Two: Pour the milk mixture into a saucepan, add the honey, and bring it to a simmer. Allow it to gently simmer until it’s thickened – about ten minutes – stirring constantly.
Step Three: After the pudding has thickened, remove from heat and stir in the vanilla and butter until combined. The pudding will still be slightly runny at this point, but it will continue to thicken as it cools.
Step Four: There is no step four. How easy was that!
If raspberries were in season, I would have loved to sprinkle a few on top of this creamy wonder. Yum, yum, yum.
You know who especially loved this dessert (besides me, of course)?
I’ll give you one guess…
